LOS ANGELES — The Utah Jazz rolled past the short-handed Los Angeles Clippers 114-96 for their ninth consecutive victory.

Donovan Mitchell scored 24 points, and Rudy Gobert had 23 points and 20 rebounds.

Jordan Clarkson scored 18 points as the Jazz improved to 24-5 with their 20th win in 21 games.

After three tight quarters, Utah pulled away smartly in the fourth to win this matchup of Western Conference powerhouses.

But it wasn’t a proper showdown with the Clippers missing injured superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

Lou Williams scored 16 points and Reggie Jackson had 15 as the Clippers' four-game winning streak ended.
